Re: Write this name on your hand

My dad Joe could use some energy today. He's been ill for a while, but back in the hospital today. I would appreciate some positive vibes our way.

Thanks, everyone.

Re: Compression Gear

Re: Recommendations for Outdoor Rings and Climbing Rope

Since you're on knot and rope, check out their promanila. I got the 1-1/2 inch to hang on our backyard oak about 4 years ago and it's still going strong. The affiliate I work out in...

Re: Getting your elbows up

Hmm, is that why I keep passing out?

Re: Gym bags...

Chris,

Came back from vacation and the bag was waiting for me. It's great. Seems like just the right amount of pockets, and the nasty bag is a very nice touch. I wish I had it when I was still doing...

Re: "Battle" ropes

+1 for Knot and Rope. I bought 20 feet of the ProManila about three years ago to hang outdoors. I chose the Pro because it would be exposed to the elements. Most of the advice I found in the boards...

Re: Rope or Rings?

Rogue has rings for $25. I don't have them, so I can't advise you, but I'm sure someone else on the board can give you their informed opinion.

Re: Keeping Track of Rounds on WODs

I guess this is very much dependent on the type of floor. We use chalk on this diamond plate patterned flooring and wiping with a dry towel or even my hand seems to clean it up sufficiently.

Re: Trouble doing push-ups

Re: Christian's Fitness Factory - CFF Rings with 18" straps

Jacob,

Thanks for the reply. At $40, that's good enough for me. I just wanted to avoid getting my brother something that might turn him off.

Re: Rope climbs worth it?

My box (Bravo Crossfit) has a manila rope. The pro-manila is much smoother, plasticky, which makes sense since it's poly as you say. Having said that, I prefer it since it doesn't seem as prone to...
